Army Satisfied With Supersonic Akash Missile


Expressing satisfaction over the performance of Made-in-India supersonic Akash missile, Army Air Defence (AAD) Director General Parminder Singh Jaggi has said that the Army was looking for further performance enhancements in future.

The Army had successfully carried out user trial of Akash, the Short-Range Surface-to-Air Missile (SRSAM) in December 2017. Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Lt Gen Jaggi said, ‘’We are happy with the Akash system. It is a watershed as far as indigenous systems are concerned.

The biggest advantage is it is a home grown system.’’ On Wednesday, the Army’s AAD will celebrate its 25th year of raising. As of now, the Army has two Akash regiments.

The Army is likely to order more Akash regiments as it is in the process of replacing its legacy systems in service.

Lt Gen Jaggi said as more regiments were ordered, there would be additional enhancements in the system as well in performance. Read More…
